Abstract: This paper briefly presents the challenges in implementing the data driven pipelines which will support the delivery of science data products from three major new spectroscopic , namely the Gaia-ESO survey, the WEAVE multi-object spectrograph for the 4.2-m William Herschel Telescope, and the 4MOST multi-object spectrograph for the ESO VISTA telescope. We note the design solutions being implemented at the Cambridge Astronomical Survey Unit where an integrated approach in the delivery of a scalable data pipeline is being adopted. The design of the processing system is strongly science driven, which ensures that the analysis system delivers high quality data products to the science survey teams on the shortest possible time-scales, thereby allowing rapid scientific validation and exploitation of the data.
